Fiery lawyer, Adesina Ogunlana, lawyer to Kamsiyochukwu Ibeh, one of the key witnesses during the Lagos panel’s sittings, said his client was attacked on Sunday night at Sangotedo area of Ajah with matchets for refusing to stop her activism over the Lekki Tollgate incident.
Ogunlana said the attack was the latest in a series of threats that forced many #EndSARS petitioners to go into hiding.
Ogunlana in a statement that he read on behalf of “New Nigeria Network,” a coalition of #EndSARS groups and other #EndSARS forces at a news conference in Lagos, said:
“Yesterday (Sunday) night, enemies of the EndSars Movement and protest launched a murderous attack on one of the leaders of the movement, Kamsiyochukwu Ibeh.
“The attackers were not criminals who came to rob her of personal effects, neither were they rapists. The criminals came with identity and with purpose.
“As they were inflicting machete cuts on her, the three assailants said: ‘We know you. Since your #EndSARS people have been warned to stop and you didn’t, when you die, go and continue in Heaven.’
“They left her for dead. That Kamsi is still alive is only by the grace of God.
“They have failed and will continue to fail in their desperate tyranny.”
